Born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Northern Michigan, Russ left home after high school to pursue his dreams. He always had a strong interest in people, and that propelled him into the automobile business. He worked at 14 different automobile dealerships in 5 different states as a sales trainer and in management. In his limited spare time, he has a habit of daily exercise by running and hiking. He has completed over 100 5k and 1/2 marathons. Most recently he spent 2.5 months hiking the Appalachian trail in 2016.
Archaeology has been a life long interest for Russ. When he first visited Utah in 2008 and saw what the Kanab area had to offer, he was totally hooked and could not wait to return and make it his permanent home. Upon returning he began to explore Native American sites and spent considerable time scouting little known spots. He knows many hidden areas that you can visit on our Slot Canyons and Indian Ruin Tours.
For Russ, working with Action Photo, is an opportunity of a lifetime. He is living his dream!!
